Just wondering if member dislike those adsense below the posts etc. Do you even use them ? Do you get any money out of it ?

Yes, it covers all the server costs, and a few competitions as well.

No. I used to, but some ********* clicked on my ads thousands of times in one day, leading the lovely Google to ban me.

I have my theories... it was almost 2 years ago, probably some form of script.

Marjorly annoyed me though.

I just put some on my site and I have made a whopping $0.49 LOL

I am honestly not sure about it yet. Still trying to figure it all out, like how to make the advertising match my site, colors, styles, etc. My members haven't had any bad comments about it yet, although I only have a few of them on there.

Same happened to me.

Since then I've tried a couple of other schemes but in the end have reverted to no ads.

When you see an extra increase in the clicks, you must send an e-mail to adsense support (or smt like that), stating this sudden increase. That will help avoiding you from banning

You'd think so.

Not so in my case. I got back from visiting relatives to find that it had happened a few days prior. Too late I guess.

Yes, I am sorry for that.
But possible future bannings might be avoided like that. Just in case, you should immediately report the sudden increase in your adsense clicks, including that you have no idea about that. Before getting banned.
And about the subject of this thread, I used to have adsense in my forum but now I removed them. Cos I am running a Turkish language information security forum, and everybody uses adblockers. And Turkish language doesnt make much money in adsense. I used adsense for 7-8 months and never saw more than 1 cent per click. So I removed them.

I have ads in a few places. I use a plugin for ads in randoms spots between posts. Nobody has complained yet. It more than pays for my dedicated server expense.

Most of my adsense clicks come from an adsense leaderboard centered under the navbar viewable to guests only. My adsense revenue more than doubled after I added it.

Got banned from google, becuase they said I submitted my forum to some sought of websurfing service. I didn't know what they were on about. So I said oh well.
